[ Back to Coaches Index ]

Ian Laperriere was named assistant coach of the Philadelphia Flyers on October 7, 2013.

Prior to his current position with the Flyers, Laperriere served as the club's Director of Player development starting in June, 2012. Before that, Laperriere had an NHL playing career that saw him play 1,083 games over 16 NHL seasons. He signed with the Flyers as a free agent prior to the 2009-10 season and appeared in all 82 games that year, as well as 13 playoff games as the club went to the Stanley Cup Final.
 
Laperriere missed his last two seasons as a player due to the aftereffects of an injury suffered in the first round of the 2010 playoffs, but has remained active within the organization working with the club’s prospects and doing television analysis on Comcast SportsNet.  Following the 2010-11 season, Laperriere won the Bill Masterton Trophy for his perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.
Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
